I forgot my camera....again. But, Tori had her Nikon so she took a few pictures.
We arrived at noon time so we were starving. We went and ate at this Mexican restaurant called, La Huerta. They all new Meg because she eats there all the time. Also, because she is a beautiful curly head white girl who speaks their language! We stuffed ourselves and talked about what we were going to do for the day. We decided on antiquing. John & I are looking for a bookshelf and another wardrobe....the girls love anything old and vintage, too.
We went to several stores downtown. Tori found an awesome old photo that she will make into a postcard. (she sells these at the Art show) also, the cutest pair of salt & pepper shakers to put in her hope chest. Meg found an old Boy Scout backpack. It is so cute and so Meg. I wish I had pictures of their stuff. I found a vintage Pyrex casserole dish with the lid, a small pyrex dish, and 7 Fire King coffe cups!!! I was SO excited!! If you've been reading my blog for awhile you will recall I collect vintage Fire King cups and vintage Pyrex. Here are some photos of them.
We never found any furniture...well, we found plenty but it was all sold!
After shopping for over 3 hours we decided to head back to the girls house and take the dogs for a walk. Lord knows I needed to burn off all that Mexican!!!
Here's Meg and I running with the dogs in the football field at one of the High Schools. If was a beautiful day to go for a walk. The high reached 65.
Here's Tor and her daddy.....I thought there was a photo of Meg on the other couch but I guess Tori forgot to upload it to her Flikr.
It was a FUN day!! I'm glad we were able to spend it as a family!!!
Oh, it's the 1st of the month. Today is my parents anniversary. If Dad were still alive they would be married, 46 years.
It's also, blog bible study. Here is my scripture for February 1st. This is the verse that came to mind....
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 NIV
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
It is possible to practice this love only if God helps us set aside our own desires and instincts, so that we can give love while expecting nothing in return. The more we become like Christ, the more love we will show to others.
